LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) -

For tonight, slow-to-cool with overnight lows falling into the upper 60s and low 70s. Winds will be out of the south at 5-10 mph.

On Tuesday, mostly sunny with highs soaring close to 100°. Please use heat safety precautions to avoid any heat related illnesses from setting in. Winds will be out of the southwest at 10-15 mph with higher wind gusts.

The ridge of high pressure dominates through the middle of the week with a forecast temperature of 100° on Wednesday. The ridge flattens allowing for a weak front to move through early Thursday morning. As a result, temperatures will cool off several degrees compared to Wednesday with highs topping out in the low-to-mid 90s.

There will be a stronger cold front that moves through early Sunday morning bringing back temperatures into the mid 80s on Monday of next week. Unfortunately, as the front moves through there will be a limited amount of moisture keeping rain chances scarce.
